Hello and happy Sunday Salon. This will be a quick post as the sun is out and I have to take advantage of it and get some seeds into the ground before it gets rainy and cold again!
I spent most of the week reading Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. I loved it, you’ll find my brief review here. I was lucky enough to pick up Waters’ newest novel, The Little Stranger, from the library and have already started reading it. I also picked up The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King. It will be my first King novel.
Sometimes I wait too long to pick up a book. I tend to avoid books that have gotten a lot of positive buzz, particularly by authors I’m not familiar with. I have been disappointed in the past, by books deemed wonderful and great by reviewers and judges alike, and I’d rather wait ’til all the hype dies down.That’s why I am number 1028 in line for a copy of The Help from my library. I obviously waited too long!
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful week.
